trick or treat

by - Thursday, November 01, 2012

I never was one to get overly excited about Halloween.  As I was younger it was a time for partying, (as most holidays are) and dressing up in ridiculous costumes.  After becoming a mother, I realized it was much more fun to dress up your child and see the look on their face when they experience the horrific joy that is candy... lots and lots of candy.  We trekked out and about in the chill of the autumn night, headed around town with Sofia and family to try our luck in a bit of trick-or-treating.  The air was a sharp difference from our beach day, much cooler with a breeze that nipped our ears.

We all headed home at the end of the night with pinched red cheeks and watery eyes.

Though she wasn't able to fully say "trick or treat," Sofia proved to be very good at saying "thank-ooo" to all the nice people that were putting candy in her basket, and telling them "bye-bye!" as she left.  We had so much fun celebrating this year, it really was the first time that we were able to participate in the holiday.

Such fun!

My favorite highlight:  Trying to touch Sofia's candy basket- she wouldn't let anyone get too close.

  7. Amazing! We don't really celebrate Halloween here in Australia but I lived in Montreal for two years and it was my favourite holiday. I think it is so much fun to dress up and eat lollies and everyone seems to be so open to creativity and generosity.
